    I didn't take to retirement very well. Slept when I was tired and got up when I wasn't. Didn't matter the time. Went stir crazy. I'm doing better now though.

    I find myself kind of torn, I'm all over the map tinkering with stuff and trying to get it done but then find myself kind of figuring if I get this done what will I do tomorrow. I think I got plenty of stuff to do for many many tomorrows though, just kind of a thing in the back of the head.

    Saturday again today.

    Wife is working for a couple more years so on those days I'll be able to do whatever I want. (I hope).

    Maybe more time to make sawdust and get stuff done around the place.

    Probably take me a few weeks before I don't park in my spot and realize I don't have a key to open the gate.
    That will look foolish huh?

    And of course more time to harass my pals here on Kahrtalk. Should be good.

    Not fond of living off the government teat but it works for them that didn't earn it so guess I shouldn't feel too guilty.

    I've stocked up on Top Ramen, Hot Dogs, and best quality dog food if things get tight.


    Colonel:

    Congratulations to you.

    I retired from DoC in July myself and have been adjusting, just as you are finding out.
    It's just a different sort of busy.

    Again congratulations, and enjoy yourself.

    Found this somewhere's years ago, figured it would be appropriate to repost it now.

    Congrats and enjoy!
    Your not the only one, and our daughter and her house has things for me, and I'm not even retired yet.
    Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
